Greetings From Washington DC.....The Happiest Place On Earth

Well, here I am, two plane rides, a short metro ride and car rental later (say it with me, kids, "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles"!) 

It's kind of hard to describe the feeling you get being here. The place is electric with excitement. (Those of you who were at Denver for the convention will understand instantly.)  Everywhere, people are ridiculously nice to one another. The cabin erupted in applause when the plane touched down at BWI. Strangers chatted each other up at the luggage carousel as they waited for their bags, then hugged and wished each other well and parted with promises to look for one another in Tuesday's crowd.......

It's going to be an amazing few days........

In other news,  the Obama campaign officially announced they'll be reorganized under a new name, "Organizing for America," which will leverage Obama's database of 13 million e-mail addresses and other supporter information to set up community organizations across the country. Interestingly enough, this organization will run both parallel and inside the official Democratic Party machinery.

Here's the YouTube announcement:
